This one appears to have some VW underpinnings. Front suspension, at least.
What is this? Ain't no Corvette but looks GM. Any other pictures? Google says possible T-Bird, but I don' think so.
Doug I have read that it is a later version of the F88 concept car. Somewhere I have pictures of it. I seem to remember they said the original was restyled although I am not 100% that is correct. Note the windshield frame which of course has a different rake at the rear of the frame from the Tbird..
Doug I just googled it and came up with pictures sooner than if I found them in my maze of files. Here are some pics of both versions.
GM designer Harley Earl? Known to have driven many of his design concepts. Picture is a little fuzzy but that might be him in the drivers seat.
Have Gun Will Travel....one of my favorite shows Sunday night 8:00pm Richard Boone
Thanks Jim and Raymay. That's kind of good looking. The original F-88 lives in Colorado at the Gateway Museum. I have touched it on it's black marble turntable.
Still on 6 days a week in Arizona.
Where do you roam?
Loved that show.
Paladin, Paladin...far, far from hooooooome....
Is this the same stash of vehicles that Griffith Borgeson found the Miller Indy cars tucked away with ?
Kansas City Massacre/“Pretty Boy” Floyd
Birger Gang circa 1920s
The Cadillac that took down Dillinger in Dayton
This is John Dillinger's 1933 Essex Terraplane 8, that was caught up in a two car shoot-out in
Chicago. The guy is pointing to a shotgun blast that was aimed at Mr. Dillinger.
Speedwrench I had thought Borgeson had found them in a warehouse that had been associated with Bugatti-dusty and packed with cosmolene I believe but pretty much intact. Somewhere I have an article on them maybe in his Golden Age book on the discovery.
The Schlumpf stash would make a great movie and it was a mess but today people are able to appreciate what the brothers collected in a large museum but of course that which the family no longer owns.
